Two cars, a Mitsubishi L200 and an Audi crashed on the A588 near the Marsh Lane junction with Crimbles Lane in Cockerham at around 6:45am.
In a tweet this afternoon, Police blamed the crash on the Audi driver's "erratic driving", and described him as a "coward".
They said he ran away from the scene after causing the smash, but confirmed that the occupants of the L200 only suffered minor injuries.
Photos show the Mitsubishi flipped onto its roof, with debris scattered across the road.
The Audi, its driver's-side front wheel badly damaged, has been smashed off the road.
